Honey is made naturally from bees and is the result of a long and involved process. This extraordinary golden liquid, has long been praised for its medicinal and cosmetic uses.
It is well known for its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, important for treating wounds, burns and most sensitive skin issues. Honey also helps to treat acne and prevent bacteria building up which can lead to imbalances in the skin and unpleasant breakouts. The enzymes in raw honey help to clarify your skin and release tight pores to make unclogging your pores easier and less abrasive.
As an antioxidant, honey can also intercept free radicals that damage the skin from within and cause it to degenerate and age. Honey also helps to repair your skin and protect it against damage from the sometimes harsh environment.
Honey in skin care helps to sooth, moisturise, hydrate and rejuvenate your skin to restore its natural glow from within and give your complexion a healthy boost.
Honey is also a humectant meaning it can draw moisture from the air and retain it in your skin. This helps to keen your skin hydrated and supple and will contribute to a healthy glow.
